Apollo Health & Wellness are introducing a 2-hour introduction to Breathwork & Ice Water exposure. You will learn about the science of Breathwork as Jason will also guide you through an hour of Breathing. By the end of the workshop, you will have the tools to alleviate stress & anxiety, change the biochemistry of your body and improve your endurance for physical activity.
Why is Breathwork so powerful?
Breathwork supports so many of the challenges everyone experiences. It reduces stress and creates feelings of peace, gratitude, clarity, communication, and connection. Breathwork also helps release trauma or mental, physical, and emotional blocks, as well as anxiety, depression, fear, grief, and anger.
How Does Breathwork Work?
The breathwork session is generally performed lying down with a gentle open mouth and a relaxed jaw. The participant is active in their inhale and passive in their exhale, taking deep breaths through the mouth and then simply letting go on the exhale. The session is guided verbally by the instructor and accompanied by a music playlist to support the journey.
What to expect?
Our sessions are done in a group and facilitated by a certified practitioner. You’ll be guided to breathe at a fast rate for a set amount of time in order to bring about altered states of consciousness. This will be done lying down.
It is worth being aware of some of the physical, mental and emotional experiences which are common for breathers. Many will experience a dry mouth for the first few minutes of the session, changes in body temperature or tingling in the body, particularly in the extremities (this is completely normal). The emergence of emotions and old memories in these sessions are also very common and allow an opportunity for emotional release.
After your Breathwork class is complete, you will then be guided through a 2-minute ice bath in our hot & cold tub suite.
What to bring:
– Swimsuit for the ice bath
– Wear something comfy for the breath so you are not rest
